Jackie Chan was born as Kong-sang Chan on Hong Kong’s famous Victoria Peak on April 7, 1954, to Charles and Lee-Lee Chan. The family emigrated to Canberra, Australia, in early 1960. The young Jackie was less than successful scholastically, so his father sent him back to Hong Kong to attend the rigorous China Drama Academy, one of the Peking Opera schools. Jackie Chan is truly one of the international film industry’s true maverick actor / director / stuntman / producer combinations. Jackie is an avid football fan and supports the Hong Kong national football team, England National Football Team, and Manchester City.

Off screen he has been directly involved in many charitable ventures providing financial assistance to schools and universities around the world. He is a UNICEF GoodWill Ambassador, and he has campaigned against animal abuse and pollution and assisted with disaster relief efforts to the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami victims.
In June 2006, citing his admiration of the efforts made by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates to help those in need, Chan pledged the donation of half his moneys to charity upon his death.
